Funded by Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Government, this £12.1 million state-of-the-art primary school was built to replace an existing school building. The doors were opened in March 2019, welcoming up to 462 pupils. Situated on the city's Great Western Road, the school provides an inspiring, flexible learning environment for Primary 1-7 children. Architects Holmes Miller specified our integral finger guard throughout, blending seamlessly with their contemporary design.
The fresh, modern school has been thoughtfully designed to include various communal and break-out spaces alongside a media library, health and wellbeing room and retreat space.
Available in a range of RAL colour and timber finishes, our integral finger guards blend discreetly in each of these contemporary spaces - keeping little fingers safe without compromising on aesthetics.
Commenting on the new school, local councillor Paul Carey said, "It provides a stimulating, healthy and wonderful atmosphere for young people to learn in and play."
The school is split into a teaching area and shared community space, with a 4-court gymnasium at the heart of the building. Available to the surrounding community, it provides an adaptable space that adds value to the school.
A multi-purpose, high-traffic environment, Blairdardie has been designed to a high quality, contemporary finish and built to last.
That's why our integral finger guards were selected. They last the lifetime of the door, saving this school up to £500 - £1,000 per door compared to plastic alternatives.
Crosslet House Care Home is a fit-for-purpose facility designed to create a less clinical living environment for residents with dementia. In a project where 'in-depth consideration was been applied to every area of design' our Alumax integral finger guards were a perfect fit.
To combat a tough combination of high user traffic and high moisture content, our integral finger guards were installed throughout this award-winning leisure centre. Their discrete nature also matched the Pod's exterior which was designed to blend in seamlessly with its natural surroundings.
This cutting-edge school uses our integral (Alumax) and retrofit (Alufast) finger guards as part of Nottingham City Council's commitment to deliver sustainability, safety and life cost savings through carefully selected products.
